Memrise courses w/audio
If I may so, I like to (quite shamelessly) promote my Memrise courses for Latin.
It must be a daunting task to learn Latin by yourself. I'm sure Duolingo's still inchoate Latin course will help a lot. I'm quite excited about it although I manage my expecations - it's still in beta mode! For self-learners, who are really into the idea of learning Latin naturally (that is with a focus on pronunciation, slowly increasing complexity, and w/o too much of that tedious and boring textbook grammar), I strongly recommend the Lingua latina per se illustrata book series and accompanying video series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSpl3cO92FvZvZa2t5ZGA_lkUVj_1bQE- on YouTube. Good stuff!
However, vocab learning is essential and declension/conjugation patterns must be learned. Unfortunately, this is dull and again lacks audio for the most part. Thus, I created some rather comprehensive courses with classical audio (plz see descriptions for each course in order to see my sources, approach, work flow, and limitations especially when it comes to audio):
- 5000 most frequent words: https://www.memrise.com/course/1480193/5000-most-frequent-latin-words-audio/
- Declension of pronouns: https://www.memrise.com/course/1474088/latin-declension-pronouns-audio/
- Declension of nouns: https://www.memrise.com/course/1474021/latin-declension-nouns-audio/
- Conjugation, regular verbs: https://www.memrise.com/course/1392398/latin-conjugation-regular-verbs-audio/
- Conjugation, common irrregular verbs: https://www.memrise.com/course/1428895/latin-conjugation-irregular-verbs-audio/
I would be delighted if you have a look. Plz report errors or your ideas in the courses' forums (see course description for a link to the discussion forum).
Already following two other Latin courses on Memrise means I'm rather reluctant to add a third ... But I'll be sure to hold onto this for future reference. :)
